- Wedding: August 2011
I just came across this board today and I am so RELIEVED to have found it! I have dreaded going dress shopping in fears of not finding anything and of course being self concious doesn’t help either. I am at a loss as to what style to go for.
I am renewing my vows next august. My husband and I decided to renew our vows for every big birthday milestone, we were married going into our 20s and we will renew our vows next year going into our 30s. When we got married 6 years ago my dress was very much the cinderella ball gown, at that time my dress was a size 14. Today my dress will probably be a size 20-24, depending. I carry most of my weight on my torso (love my babies, but not how pregnancy changed my body!).
Our wedding 6 years ago wasn’t really “for us” my MIL very much had her say and well looking back on our wedding doesn’t exactly bring happy memories to DH and I. During my MIL’s speech she actually said “I can’t believe my son married a fat bride” oy, that hurt. I am worried what will be said now that I am a few sizes bigger!
In any case, I really love this board and I look forward to meeting many of you. Keep the ideas coming and I love the pictures! all beautiful ladies!
